Paving the Way to Our Future Fundraising Campaign
Dear OCS Families,
Last year, the OCS PTO introduced a new and impactful fundraiser to support our school. The Paving the Way campaign does not sell anything and does not ask for any time from volunteers. It is a way to simply show our support for our school, to leverage the tools and technology available to us to help our school become even better and stronger.
Our goal last year was $15,000. Together we met that challenge and surpassed it! Our contributions, our support for Odyssey materialized into the purchase of the Compass Learning Reading program for our students as well as SMART boards for eight additional classrooms. This directly impacts your children, every time your child signs on to Compass Learning that is because of all of us and our fundraising effort last year.
As we settle in to the routine of a new school year, we are reminded of what makes our school great. Why we are all here instead of our neighborhood schools. We may be talking to each other about car lines, or when there would be full use of the upper school gym, or when would our 6th graders be settled in to their permanent classrooms for this year. While those issues are important to us as caregivers to our children, convenience and the ideal school layout are not what brought us to Odyssey. We are here for the excellent academic curriculum and our superior teaching staff, truly passionate about our children’s education. We are here to lay a foundation for our children to learn other languages, graduating from Odyssey fluent in Greek. We are here for the strong sense of community that Odyssey fosters in the classroom, which we all mirror to our children whenever we participate in the classroom or school events.
This year we are asking again for your support. Think of what we can do for our children if each family contributes $50 per child. We would far exceed our goal of raising $20,000! This year we are targeting additional SMART boards, iPad labs, and educational software.
